Lanyards!!

Post  Captain Lyerly on Mon May 04, 2009 5:10 am

Someone had a link to lanyards on BG. Thought I would get my thoughts down here before they all blew away in the winds of Limbo; when I get the chance I will dupe this into that thread.

Pretty fancy colored lanyards, a bit steep though, from a military surplus dealer. C'mon, folkes! You are SteamPunks! You are MAKERS!

is a simple one to make. You can make that! Line is dead cheap, and you can get it in lots of colors.

Here is a good link for some examples. And here are some tutorials. Let's see some fancywork.

Cheers!

Chas.

Getting right on it...

Post  Kedric on Mon May 04, 2009 5:26 am

I made a quick lanyard just now from some cord I had lying around, pictures will be forthcoming in about 12 hours when I get my camera back.

However, I didnt try to learn any new knots from your helpful links, so i'll have to make another sometime after i've learned some new skills.

That's okay, Kedric! Glad you took a little inspiration and ran with it. You don't have to go out and learn a new skill set every time you set out to make something.

Good on ya, mate!


Cheers!

Well, lots of "nothing fancy" is all that it takes to do most of the larger, more complex projects.
Considering the line you had at the time, that's a pretty good start.


Cheers!

Well, i don't know about lanyards, but I have been starting to learn some knots for climbing. My favourite so far is a Prusik knot, let's me climb a vertical rope safely in no time!
In fact, we strung a hammock between two cliffs, about 30 meters in the air, and I Prusik'ed into it. Quite nice up there Very Happy

Didn't James Bond pull out his shoelaces and make a couple of Prusiks to save his life and get into the bad guy's lair (part of lair played by Meteora, one of the best possible locations)? I haven't used those in... oh. Well, it was in a prior MILLENIUM, let it go at that. affraid

I have mostly used knotwork in nautical pursuits, but there are some truly decorative projects... I think I may have to do some more soon. Now where did I lay that marlinspike... IGOR!


Cheers

You are correct! Though I am not sure conventional shoe-laces would be long enough to get a knot with enough friction..Bond probably has doubled-up laces just in case Wink
